Joy

My first Christmas card for this year!! Just a fun, little start for my collection. The little elf's shoes and pants are glittery, but it's hard to see in the picture. I don't know how much "joy" he's having...LOL.

In past years, I made the same card for everyone I've sent cards to. While blog surfing this year, I read about the idea to make many different cards. Some people make 1-2 cards per week all year to be ready in time for Christmas sending. Clearly, I'm too late for that!! Making different cards does sound appealing, though. I get tired of the assembly line making of SO MANY cards. We'll see what happens...

Fabby fab Anne - love the image it's adorable. I'm totally with you on the idea of creating different cards - I did mass produce one year and that was enough. I've got about 30 cards in my stash since I ended up not sending any last year due to our trip to Germany - I wanted to include photos from the trip instead. SO I'm well on my way. Thanks for coloring with JUGS this week - we appreciate your support and participation.
